Gingko logoDOCA is excited to be working with Ginkgo projects on a community event aimed at the new Kings Gate estate in Amesbury.

Ginkgo Projects is an independent public art and cultural producer driven by a desire to create vision and experience led opportunities for artists and creative practitioners working closely with clients, design teams and communities to build and reveal an authentic sense of narrative, place and distinctiveness within both urban and rural environments. For more about what they do, see their website

Kings Gate is a new estate in Amesbury where over 4,000 homes have been built creating a new community, many of whom are military families. This project aims to create and engage the new community & connect them with the existing residents & the heritage of the local area.

We will be looking to work with a group of local people of all ages to create an entry in the 2019 Amesbury Carnival. We would like to attract residents who are new to the area who would work alongside longer term residents from the Kings Gate area.

This event is still in its infancy and we are waiting to hear about funding for the project, but we will be releasing more information about it as the project develops. Keep a look out in Amesbury and the Kings Gate area for our consultation cards if you want to get involved, or voice your interest via our form
